No 'defensive systems are capable of dealing with' China's hypersonic missile, Milley says

The United States would be incapable of defending itself against a hypersonic missile akin to the experimental one China launched over the summer, according to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff .

Gen. Mark Milley acknowledged the gap in the U.S. defense capabilities during a talk at Duke University on Friday afternoon.

Over the summer, China tested “a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile” that “circled the globe before speeding towards its target, demonstrating advanced space capabilities that caught U.S. intelligence by surprise,” the Financial Times reported last month. However, Chinese government officials have denied it.

“What they did a few weeks ago was very significant militarily and from an experiment standpoint in terms of research and development," he said. "That was a system — and I can’t go into the classification part of it — that was a system that traveled at extraordinary rates of speed that no defensive systems are capable of dealing with.”

Milley, who previously called the test a near "Sputnik moment," is one of the few defense officials to comment publicly on the hypersonic test and what it could mean for U.S.-China relations.

These missiles, which Milley says are “of great concern,” can carry both conventional and nuclear payloads, though the Chinese's missile advancements are also significant for the larger picture of the country's long-term goals.

“It is one data point in a much broader picture of the development of the Chinese military,” he said, later noting the U.S. would be “utterly naive” to think the Chinese military’s development is for “purely benign purposes.”

The Chinese have accelerated their nuclear expansion program, according to a recent DOD report on China's military advancements. They could “have up to 700 deliverable nuclear warheads” within roughly five years, while the report alleges the country “likely intends to have at least 1,000 warheads by 2030, exceeding the pace and size the DoD projected in 2020," the report outlines.

Additionally, Gen. John Hyten, outgoing vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently admitted the Chinese military has conducted "hundreds" of hypersonic tests in the last five years, while the U.S. conducted only nine such tests, illustrating why the Department of Department has repeatedly called the adversarial nation its "pacing challenge."

This could just be fear mongering like they used to do during the cold war
Yup.
It was revealed after the Cold War ended that the Soviet capabilities were highly exaggerated to justify the Military Industrial Complex and the continuation of the Cold War.
In case of this Chinese hypersonic missile, I dont think this is a game changer in a world where hundreds of nuclear tipped missiles are pointed at each other and often from unknown locations.

General Milley is a great friend of China.

He promised to give a heads up to China as and when the US plan to start a war with China.

Also, he believes and said China is not an Enemy.

Fearmongering was by US nd West Media.
But these information are revealed by Pentagon and retired generals.

China admitted that they have indeed tested a reusable highly maneuverable hypersonic glide space vehicle at low earth orbit which managed to avoid detection of US radars and satellites.

US admitted that such vehicle or missiles are very difficult to track and intercept as their trajectory is unpredictable.

He is the friend of their own people, not a friend of China or other countries.

If your Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff is a friend of other country. Then your military recruitment & screening team is a doom


He just being Realistic, and realize China is not an Enemy you want to get Trouble with.

Unlike some rednecks keyboard warrior in here, who barking and boasting that China is weaker than Afghanistan 😂

If US generals say something like that, it means they ask more money for the military.

It's Game changer or not, that's another discussion.


Most Nuclear and other missiles that pointed to US mostly comes in the direction of Northern hemisphere.
But this so-called China's Space Plane that can carrying Hypersonic Missiles can attack US from Southern Hemisphere or basically every direction that China wants.

That's what they concern.


But I'm agree with you, this event will trigger more funds to their already In-efficient and budget hungry Military industrial complex.

And you can see what happen when a country put their military first before their economy, just like Soviet.



Meanwhile Chinese is not Soviet, China industries and economy is much bigger than Soviet in their peak time and their economy would surpass the US very soon (2026).

Like much analyst said, the Chinese have longer breath than their american counterpart
